That's a good point, but It seems to me like you could have a lot room go different directions with the tone of the Gunslinger. Ron Howard is a bland director most of the time. A big straight forward epic- style Gunslinger sounds boring to me. It rather see a dark Guillermo Del Toro crazy Zombie, Western shoot em' up flick.

I see Drawing of the 3 as a film you could get guy like Howard or Darabont to
shoot as written, but The Gunslinger needs a director with a creative vision, IMO.

Now Wastelands... Now there is a book with a huge amount of ****-up potential. They better hire ZZ top to do the score for that one!
